Eisenhower Hotel & Conference Center
Ranked #28 of 28 Hotels in Gettysburg
Reviewed October 24, 2009

We stayed here because everything else was booked the week end we went to Gettysburg. We got two rooms. It's a few miles out of town and away from restaurants and attractions. The hotel was full and I liked that we did not hear other guests walking in the halls or from other rooms. Maybe we were just lucky to share the place with quiet people that week end. The pool and hot tub were nice. The beds were comfortable. Our rooms were in the older building which seems in need of a facelift: drippy toilet, worn fixtures, old wall paper. But it was comfortable and since we weren't there to stay in the hotel for more than rest it was OK. Stay here if you can get a well discounted rate.

Booked this hotel through Priceline for $80/night. When you first arrive, the grounds are very beautiful and the check in area is very nice. That's where it ends. The front desk staff were rude. Not only to me, but to other guests checking in at the time. They were very worried about what they were going to eat for lunch, instead of taking care of guests. On to the room in the "old" section (I think because we booked through Priceline, we weren't allowed to use the "nice" rooms in the second building ~ wallpaper peeling, towels were threadbare, floors dirty and even the door jams were black with fingerprints and dirt. On to the pool area ~ really, this should just be shut down by the Board of Health. There is mold EVERYWHERE. When I read that people liked the pool area, I am wondering if we stayed in the same place??? It was disgusting !!!! You can get a serious disease in this place. That's when we decided to leave. I didn't even create a fuss at the front desk and ask for my money back. Just told them the place was disgusting, left my key and off we went. I'll never go back, nor will I recommend this place to anyone.

My sister and our friend took a trip to Gettysburg and spent a night at the Eisenhower. Luckily we did our own pricing at Priceline and got the room for $50 a night. I'm glad we paid no more then that because it was not worth it. The hotel itself was outdate. The wallpaper in our room was peeling and scuffed. The shower had bad pressure. The curtains were too short so once the sun came out you woke up because light filtered in from the bottom of the curtain. The AC in the room kept turing off and the room was too warm. If you want it cheap try Priceline. I wouldn't recommend it though. Also they offer no breakfast. You are better off staying at the Best Western or Days Inn

I was in Gettysburg for an overnight visit. My girlfriend wanted to go experience some "ghost" and I needed a little getaway.

I made a $40 bid on priceline for a 2star hotel room in Gettysburg, and I got a room at the Eisenhower Hotel. As pointed out by Laura in the other review, it is definitely outdated. Our room did have double beds, so she might have just not been lucky about that.

Pros:
-clean, good water pressure in the shower
-The inside pool is kinda neat, although we didn't get to use it.

Cons:
- Four miles south of town. You cannot walk to anything in Gettysburg from the hotel's location.
- It could use a paint job in and outside the rooms.
- In room coffee pot was miserable
- Not worth $75+tx/fees if you pay full price. If you have to pay full price, better stay at the Days Inn or something else in town.

Summary: if you need a cheap, clean place to crash while visiting Gettysburg and don't mind driving the four miles to town, it's an okay place.

I used a coupon from roomsaver.com . I walked in. Quick service. Receipt slipped under our door. Had to run bath water alittle long to recieve hot water. However all together it was a good experience. I would suggest to stay here!
It was a hop skip and a jump to the conference center. We liked that!!
